Farming/Crafting/Upgrading Gems

Recommended Posts

i'd like to have some info about what drops if you already have all the legendary gems.

 

Legendary gems will stop dropping, but you can get additional ones to drop if you store a legendary gem on another character (you will receive the 'hidden' one.)

  • 60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ 0;

here's the mistake, it should be

60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ Gem's Rank;

Very, very helpful Diablo guides. Excuse my ignorance but can the legendary gems only be upgraded when unsocketed? Thank you

Nope, you can upgrade any Legendary Gem you've got either in your inventory, stash or equipped. You can even switch them between characters.

The minimum Rift levels needed to get 100% every time is over by 1. It should be 12, 15, 18, etc.

If you run a rift at rank 13, with a rank 1 gem, the following happens:

Rank 1 to Rank 2 = 100%

Rank 2 to Rank 3 = 100%

Rank 3 to Rank 4 = 100%

If you did it on rank 12, you would have that final upgrade as a 90% chance.

Legendary Gems start at Rank 0, not Rank 1

You are correct! Apologies for that, my mistake. I'll make sure that the writers are made aware and this gets fixed.

"Urshi asks you to choose between upgrading your gem or refunding you an upgraded Keystone"

Is this still true?

No it is not. This entire guide will get an update, since it has a bit of outdated info. Will post here when it is updated!

Boon of the Hoarder is no longer exclusive to Greed, it also drops in G-Rifts.

I've put in another note for the gems guide to be updated, hopefully we can get it done soon!

Could anyone tell me how to get the gem recipes for royals? I started my first seasonal character and I totally forgot how to get the recipes since it's been so long since I got the recipes for my non seasonal characters.

You'll need to do bounties - they drop in the caches!

Missing the Esoteric Gem. The one that reduces all non-physical damage...

There are a few missing since it hasn't been updated in a while. I've made notes for it to be done, but yet to be so far - will ping the note again and get it done, sorry!

Just one more friendly bump since its been 6 months since anyone posted on this thread for an update.

An update for this guide should be coming soon-ish, but since it is near the bottom of our priority list, I can't really say when. Sorry to keep you waiting!

I'd love to know what people do to farm normal gems.  The best I've found is to farm bounty bosses with the broken crown (of course).  Others have suggested puzzle rings and trying for gem gobs, but I feel this would be less reliable for early in the season (when you would need to farm normal gems).

      We're dealing with Monks in this week's Challenge Rift, so check out the video guides for a smooth clear!
      EU Challenge Rift 145
      Ignore Mantra of Salvation and Cyclone Strike; both abilities are a waste of spirit. Use Sweeping Wind when you enter the rift and again if you die. Keep channeling Tempest Rush from the moment you enter the rift until you are out, use Epiphany on cooldown so that you don't run out of spirit. Use Blinding Flash on the Rift Guardian.
      For the layout and more tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 145
      Spam Breath of Heaven and Epiphany whenever they are up. Note that using Epiphany will teleport you to the target. Never use Mantra of Salvation or Wave of Light. Dash to monsters and use Crippling Wave (spirit generator) to punch them.
      Check out the video below by Raxxanterax for more details about this week's Challenge Rift!

      In this week's Challenge Rift, we're dealing with the new Wizard Hydra set.
      EU Challenge Rift 144
      Use Storm Armor and Familiar at the beginning of the rift to buff up.
      Black Hole should be used on Elites and to stack up enemies. Teleport around and let HydraArcane Hydras do the work. You always want to have up five hydras.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 144
      At the beginning of the rift, activate your Magic WeaponConduit and Storm ArmorScramble.
      Activate Slow TimeTime Warp on Elites. You can use TeleportWormhole twice within a short time frame, so make sure to use that for moving around efficiently. 
      Black HoleAbsolute Zero should be used to gather up enemies, otherwise, just summon Hydras.
      Check out the video below by Raxxanterax for more details about this week's Challenge Rift!

      The first Challenge Rift of Season 20 has arrived and we have a Barbarian utilizing the new Frenzy set in both regions.
      EU Challenge Rift 143
      Activate Battle Rage for more damage and War Cry for more toughness when you enter the rift. Immediately start attacking mobs to get the 5 stacks of Frenzy going. You need to maintain them which is not that hard, just keep attacking. Use Furious Charge to move around. Try to utilize the Shield Pylon from the first floor up to the fourth where the mob type deals less damage.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 143
      The Flavor of Time is going to double the duration of your pylons and Bane of the Powerful provides a damage-increasing buff after killing an elite pack. When killing yellow elites, it means you must defeat all their minions too for it to trigger.
      You activate Wrath of the BerserkerInsanity, Threatening ShoutIntimidate, and War CryImpunity all the time. Battle RageBloodshed should be cast just twice because the buff lasts long.
      Other than that, you use Furious Charge to move around and fish for Elite packs and keep 10 stacks of Frenzy up.
      Check out the video by Raxxanterax for the layout of this week's Challenge Rift.
